If you have seen a Butterfly or Moth you can't put a name to then post a photo of it here and we'll try and identify it for you.

I'm not sure what the following two caterpillars are.

Possibly Narrow-winged Pug found on Heather:

No idea, but found in a more grassy/rushy area of habitat, but still with heather around:

and

Also found several Fox Moth caterpillars:

And some Vapourer eggs:

Yes, Narrow-winged Pug. The noctuid is an Apamea species, probably Rustic Shoulder-knot or Dusky Brocade, but you'd have to rear it to be sure. Roy
